DM – Actor Jamie Foxx is again facing a backlash for making a controversial, racially charged remark, this time for making a statement about black superiority during an NAACP awards ceremony. Foxx declared that black people are the ‘most talented people in the world’ at the 44th annual NAACP Image Awards, drawing the ire of conservative critics who took offense to what they considered a racist remark. As he accepted the Entertainer of the Year Award during the Feb. 1 ceremony, he praised other luminaries such as Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier, saying that he was humbled by the amazing people he shared the stage with. ’Black people are the most talented people in the world. I, it’s, I can’t explain it,’ Foxx said. ‘You can’t sit in this room and not watch Gladys Knight sing and go like, “Golly, what in the world?”’ The site NewsBusters, which claims its mission is to expose the media’s bias toward the left, picked up on the comment and writer Noel Sheppard criticized Foxx for what he lambasted as a ‘really stupid’ remark. ’Can you imagine the heat a white actor would get if he said at a nationally televised awards ceremony, “White people are the most talented people in the world?” Sheppard wrote. ‘Probably be the end of his or her career.’
If we’re being honest with each other then Jamie Foxx is probably right. Black people kill it in the entertainment and sports industries which is where talent matters and what I assume he was talking about. Sure other races are good at stuff, but if it doesn’t involve dunking, singing or dancing then who really cares right? Like japanese people are good at samurai fighting but nobody gives a shit about that. Jewish people are good at banking and being smart but that’s not a glamourous profession. White people are good at being the devil but you’re not supposed to talk about that. If we’re looking at the big picture of natural talent in the arenas that people care about the most, then it’s pretty obvious black folks got everyone else beat. Not a controversial racist remark. Just the truth. Any race that gives us Bo Jackson and Thriller basically trumps all.
Except swimming and pulling out. They’re not too talented at swimming or pulling out.
